Well, we've had a fun couple of weeks. Porter got a stomach virus (probably from ECFE). It started the day he was at my parents house. They were watching him because our daycare provider's mother died. He was sick a few times at their house and really just didn't feel well all day. I was working that weekend. Jeff had him the next day and he was still not feeling that great. That night Jeff started not feeling too well, so I stayed home from work the next day. My parents called that morning and said they were both up all night throwing up and having diarrhea (sorry for that). I felt really bad that Porter got them sick, but hey, what can you do? At this point Connor and I both still felt fine and I was waiting for the other shoe to drop. Jeff stayed home from work on Monday and on Tuesday with Porter while I worked. Porter was still having diarrhea (sorry again) and was getting a really sore butt. Jeff said he got the gold star for the lunchtime diaper change on Tuesday. Jeff was only sick for a couple of days, and luckily not to the extent that my parents were sick. I think now Porter is finally back to normal and his poor butt is mostly healed. Connor mostly escaped, though on Wednesday last week he threw up on the bus just before it arrived at our house. Poor kid. I hope he's not labeled now as "the kid who threw up on the bus"! He assured me that Jonah threw up on the bus once too, so at least he has company. He threw up 2 more times within an hour and then was pretty much fine. I think I dodged this bullet completely. Must be my superior immune system!! There aren't too many infected body fluids I haven't been exposed to over the course of my life thus far.
My 2 sick boys:
Porter 15 mos:
Connor 10 mos:
Finally, Porter had his 15 month check up last week. He was down on his weight, due to his illness. He's now 23 lbs 9.8oz which is between the 25th-50th%. Last time he was 50th-75th%. I'm sure he'll make a comeback though, he's a good eater. He was not however thrilled with being weighed or getting shots!
